13 iPad Games For Honing Critical Thinking Skills - Global Digital Citizen

13 iPad Games For Honing Critical Thinking Skills - Global Digital Citizen | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"The phrase “don’t play games with me” is about to get a turnover. Play games all you want—your brain (and especially your students’ brains) will thank you for it!

When your students learn to recognize patterns and develop problem solving strategies, their probing questions and insightful answers will enhance instruction in every subject you teach. Gaming is a great way to develop these kinds of skills.

The following are a few short lists of great tablet games that develop and refine critical thinking skills. They’re separated by grade levels, and are among some of the best ones out there."

Det är inte bara eleverna som ska försöka använda den smarta telefonen i klassrummet!!

Camilo Toro Arias's curator insight, April 24, 3:48 PM
The power of technology can not only be used inside the classroom, but also outside of it in order to achieve a fruitful communication between the parts (teachers-students). The tools named in this article are great options for those teachers who want to be in touch with their students all the time... Send materials or information about next classes and so on, since they are specifically designed for that. Yeah! Teachers can communicate their ideas and thoughts in the target language, and students will make an effort to use that language as well. Like that, the communicative practice will not be reduced to the two or three class hours inside the institution.

6 iPad Apps for Creative Writing ^ Edutopia ^ by Monica Burns

6 iPad Apps for Creative Writing ^ Edutopia ^ by Monica Burns | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it
Creative writing can be a daunting task for students who struggle to think of story ideas or who don't love the writing process. For kids who have trouble putting pen to paper, there are a handful of fantastic iPad apps that just might inspire them to tell a story. Your students will be able to gather ideas, brainstorm and publish writing straight from their tablet.

For students at all levels, creative writing is an important part of English language arts curriculum. Not only do the Common Core State Standards specifically outline the expectation that students should be able to express themselves through the written word, but this is also an essential real-world skill. Students should have the ability to write narratives that tell a story from their own life or a story that they've imagined. The following apps will inspire young writers and give them a vehicle for sharing their work.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | Best Apps for Education | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.
